Defining their own house as an art work in 2006 became the basis for a long-term artistic practice together. The ‘house as art work’ is a framing device to open up a meta-perspective on their own work, the art world and daily life in general. Their practice investigates the dynamics between economy, law, and governing, deploying the arts and the socio-economic conditions of artists as their preferred case studies. Considering the art world a micro cosmos for the dynamics that play out in wider society they look into the possibilities for a more equitable distribution of values produced.
